Local Seniors Get Creative to Help Their Less Fortunate Peers
SACRAMENTO: Hands in Mud Studio will be a place for seniors to create, donate and preview artistic contributions to the River City Food Bank’s Empty Bowls Event. Libby Harmor will gather fellow artists for an exhibit of their wares and offer a prism into the active, artistic life of seniors who care about seniors suffering from food insecurity.
The artist showcase will take place at Libby Harmor’s Hands in Mud Studio:
WHERE: Hands in Mud Studio
1001 Del Paso Blvd, Sacramento, 95815
WHEN: Tuesday, February 18
TIME: 2:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m.
Hands in Mud Studio owner Libby Harmor, a 40-year Sacramento artist in residence, Del Paso Blvd. fixture and character that adds luster to our city life (she makes sculptures from shredded money, www.libbyartwork.com), along with River City Food Bank Executive Director Eileen Thomas will be available at the event.
Empty Bowls is the premier fundraising event for the River City Food Bank, slated this year for March 10-11 at the Convention Center. As a keepsake, attendees of Empty Bowls may take home a handcrafted bowl (perhaps one shown or crafted at Hands in Mud event) as a reminder of the hungry among us.
Empty Bowls tickets are $60 for the evening event and $30 for the luncheon event and are available online at www.rivercityfoodbank.org. Proceeds from the event will purchase healthy food for River City Food Bank’s emergency grocery program.
